DO you code layouts in CSS or HTML?

I find them 100 times easier in CSS.

You can't really code html, since you cannot store them into what you can call a "variable" in CSS you can via classes, which you can use over and over again =)

Definitely CSS.  This allows your page to flow wonderfully for that small percentage of people who don't and cannot use CSS due to some sort of handicap or just personal preference.  Also, this is great for cell phone accessability.  You must also be sure, of course, to use correct semantics in you html tags. 

Good, clean, logical html looks great and is very easy to maintain.

I don't get what you mean... you can't use CSS alone, so you would need to use CSS with HTML or HTML alone.

I use CSS with HTML

Modus Operandi:
Semantic, Tableless, Valid, Strict Doctype HTML and CSS build on PHP with unobtrusive DOM.

Exceptions:
Tables for data and information relationships, and
3rd Party Application integrations where core files have hard coded garbage.

You'd be amazed that all cross-browser issues vanish entirely when you don't use CSS for layout.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.

I generally create the page in HTML with tables, then format everything using CSS.
